Why FG Needs To Tighten Its Fight Against Insurgency After The Abduction Of Kwara Monarch Household

Just as it was said, the simple way to befall a country is by capturing its leader. This is not the first time the incident, whereby bandits attack the Nigerian community and abduct some noble individuals of high esteem.

Again, another unpleasant incident has surfaced online that five members of the household of Oba Samuel Adelodun, the Owalobbo of Obbo-Ayegunle in the Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State, were reportedly kidnapped by gunmen on Thursday, along Osi/Obbo-Ayegunle road.

The interim state police command has reported that the victims of the incident includes the Monarch's driver, who is known as Kunle, security detail, Lawrence Abiodun, his maid, Mrs Bunmi Akanbi along with her six-year old twin daughters.

It was gathered that the victims were returning from Osi, a neighboring community to Obbo-Ayegunle, in a Toyota Sienna bus when some group of unknown gunmen accosted them around 6:30pm and took them to the bush, leaving the car behind.

The recent abduction of the high esteem victims should serve as an informant to the leadership of the country that the security pattern to which the Nation operate on is spineless, and that bandits are ready to devoir the interest of Nigeria if something is not done as soon as possible. Going beyond kidnapping of citizens into abducting members of the leadership workers is a proof that insecurity is getting worst than ever before.
